New Renogy issue

I installed a 325 watt resi panel, and a Renogy Rover 30 MPPT controller. I also purchased the BT-1 bluetooth dongle to allow monitoring from my Android phone. It seemed to work well up until 3 days ago. Dry Camping my solar suddenly quit producing. The app showed 12.5 volts at the batteries and only about .6 volts from the panel. Accessed the leads from the panel at the controller, and got 38 volts, while the app said nothing. An hour later as I scoured the web, the system started working again. Two days later it did the same thing. And as before, a couple hours later, it started working again. Both times voltage was around 12.9 to 13.2 when the unit shut down, and quickly drained the batteries to 12.4 or 12.5. Called Renogy today, and was advised that the BT-1 dongle (bluetooth interface) was likely the issue. Downloaded the new App, Search for Renogy DC home at the playstore or app store, and it seems to be working for now. Download the app, there is little to nothing for a tutorial, but if yours is acting up, this could be it.

RE: Residential refrigerator door shelf failures

Try a glue, and maybe even adding a layer of other material as a stiffener. And load lighter items on that particular section.

RE: My key fob quit working

Amazon has listings for key fobs, I went there for new ones for my jeep. You likely will have to take it to a locksmith for programming after purchase. Have either the vehicle or at least the VIN with you when you go.

RE: Power drain

Do you park it in the sun? If so, even a small solar charger like this can take care of the digital clock and small drains. Unit is small enough to set on your dash, or run the wire to the battery direct.

This site is operated by Good Sam, a partner of Camping world, so they are the only ones allowed to peddle their wares.

RE: No battery power

On 12 volt systems the ground is the most frequent issue, not just at the battery connection, but the other end of that cable and where it attaches to the trailer chassis. A quick check is to use a jumper cable from Battery neg to the metal at the hitch. 10 second check, and eliminates half the possibilities.

RE: Trouble Pairing Bluetooth mouse With Android Tablets

As GDE stated, likely unable to pair two items at once. a wireless mouse that uses an interface that plugs into a usb port would probably be the solution. amazon

RE: RV's and internet connections

Look closely at your carriers data package, Then look at the others, do they have coverage where you are, or plan on going? ATT (and the others too I'm sure) offers a hotspot plan for data only that gives 100 gigs for $55 a month. T-mobile claims unlimited data on their plans, but has little to no coverage where I live, so have not tried them. t-mob home internet This is meant to be a home unit, will need a 120 household power source, but a small inverter could easily handle it for remote usage.

RE: Solar panel

For a greenhouse application, you should not need 24/7 operation. A small battery (rv/marine group 24) and some sort of timer to turn the fan off and on several times a day could work. You may end up looking at a small 300 watt inverter and a 120 Volt timer to put it together.

RE: Interesting EV’s versus ICE article…

Personal belief/opinion. EV's are similar to many other topics in the US. One faction wants to push their beliefs on others. For us, it seems one particular side always demands the other side capitulate to their demands. Forcing EV's is just one more part of that philosophy. As I said earlier, My opinion is that they have a place, urban grocery getter, commuter vehicle and the inclusion of hybrids give them more flexibility. But that one side in the US, and maybe the world, that demands ALL give in to them will not stop until they have forced their ideals on others.

RE: Interesting EV’s versus ICE article…

The EV's have a future for the masses, as grocery getters, kid carriers, and soccer mom hideouts. But I cant see them ever taking over for the extreme north Canadian woods (Yukon and NWT) or for Alaska outside Juneau, and maybe Anchorage. Range and ability to refuel is too limited by these commuter vehicles. I have to believe there are nightmare stories already out there, and yes the media is great at NOT covering the stories that do not fit the inner city narrative, of folks being stranded by their EV's. There are already too many in the UNcapable hands of folks that do not think far enough ahead to use them appropriately. For those that want to abuse the campgrounds, here is an option. Alaska trip So with this, all of us with carbon fueled vehicles can help support the EV purist.

RE: Bluetooth question

Just a SWAG (stupid wild assed guess) but is it a Samsung app? Their phone apps are often touchy about you using their equipment.

RE: Widows 2021 bounder 33c

Not being condescending but first, 1. Are you sure the locks are not in a locked or latched position? 2. Is the gasket possibly stuck to the window? Is the gasket felt, or rubber? Is there any movement at all? Can you slide a putty knife between the glass and gasket?

RE: RV Pad Size + turnaround space

If at all possible, make it a loop so no backing is required. Pull through spots for some are a requirement.

RE: Another Golf Cart Battery Question

Are you going to add solar? If so, your solar controller could give you the monitoring you want.
